Historic UNGA on social media

Sep 19, 2020

As the United Nations marks 75 years of helping people everywhere, this year’s General Assembly session will be unlike any other.

Although most of us will not be gathering at the UN’s New York Headquarters this year, this General Assembly — coming at a time of urgent global challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic — is perhaps more important than ever before.

Here are some ways you can use your voice on social media to be part of this historic UNGA and show your support for peace, human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals.

GA Hall 360 Experience: Explore the General Assembly Hall! This 360-video will allow you to travel through history to check out some of the most memorable moments that have played out on one of the world’s most recognizable political stages. Begin your virtual journey on the @UnitedNations Facebook page, starting Sunday 20 September at 6pm EST.
